Char Siu Sauce

READY IN: 1min
Recipe by DrGaellon

Char Siu properly refers to roasted pork which has been marinated in this sauce... but this is the base flavor. Most Chinese restaurants add red food coloring to give the meat its characteristic hue, but it's entirely optional. Marinate any cut of pork in this sauce before grilling or roasting, and pass more sauce on the side. Adapted from a recipe by Joshua Bousel at Serious Eats.

Quick and delicious sauce/condiment for stir fries. I made Char Siu Pork Corn and Bok Choy Stir Fry posted by The Flying Chef (also very delicious) which called for adding Char Siu sauce at the end and was glad to find a recipe to make it! Tasty, thanks!
